It is our policy that all children should wear school uniform when attending school and parents/carers are expected to ensure that their children leave home for school correctly and properly dressed in uniform that is appropriate to the season and weather conditions.

Wearing the Great Wishford Primary School Uniform

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • Engenders a feeling of belonging and being a community
  • Is practical and smart
  • Identifies the children with the school
  • Is not distracting in class (as fashion clothes might be)
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • Is regarded as suitable and good value for money, by most parents

Hair and make up

Hairbands, clips etc should be discreet designs, in school uniform colours, and only used in order to keep hair in place. Some hair clips/bands may need to be removed for PE on the grounds of health and safety. Hair of shoulder length or longer should be tied back (both boys and girls). 

No make-up, nail varnish or temporary transfers should be worn during the school day.


Earrings should be small, plain studs only if ears are pierced. Earrings must be removed or taped
over for sports lessons.
